from the cia tells us more about the state of our nation than a dozen petraeus. president barack obama should not have accepted his resignation. we seem to care more about the sex lives of our leaders down their real lives of our soldiers. i want to pick that apart one piece at a time. he suggests that his resignation says more about the nation about him? what do you mean? >> it worries me that we can throw away the leaders so casually. general petraeus is one of the more prominent generals of our time. the only general the american public has really been known since world war ii. a lot of generals tried and failed in iraq. petraeus succeeded. here we have a leader who has done well. something happened between him and another person, a private consenting adults, nothing illegal, and we throw him out. i do not think we can afford to do that. we did not use to do that. dwight eisenhower carried on with his chauffeur, a very good- looking red-haired british woman. he was not fired. ike, you gotta go home, you had an affair. that would be crazy. that is kind of what we're doing these

federal law regulates them too tightly denying states the flexibility to set up exchanges their way. many of them hoped they'd never have to make the call, but now that president obama has been re-elected the future of health care reform is more certain leaving some states scrambling. states who plan on building exchanges must opt in or out of the exchanges by december 14, along with blueprints for the project. states who plan to partner with the federal government have until february to give their notice. sylvia hall, "n.b.r.," washington. >> susie: next week on "n.b.r.," we'll have more on health care and look at which stocks will be the winners and losers as companies gear up for president obama's health care insurance mandate. how much do retailers benefit by opening early for those black friday sales? we'll find out if longer hours add up to bigger profits. and we look at ways investors are putting their money to work to better their communities. >> tom: with 45 days before the end of the year, lawmakers say they will speed up their negotiations over avoiding the fiscal cliff.

49 states. that's a mandate. it's unthinkable that any candidate can win anywhere close to that. obama won a pretty impressive victory even without a serious third party candidate, he did not get 51% of the popular vote. he won 26 states to romney's 24 states. we'll see time after time very, very close elections. we need to rethink the negotiations of mandates and say this person won the presidency. they need to go forward with that agenda. >> what about the republicans? are they going to do a big rethink here? >> yes, and more than one. it was interesting that the republican governors happened to be meeting this week in las vegas when this news about the interesting comments that romney made to his donors that we just saw and the republican governors, bobby jindal of louisiana did not miss five seconds before they really denounced what romney was saying. the republicans have a lot of things to think about, not of which is their growing problem with hispanic voters. that is the big growing group in this country. republicans are still largely a party of white people and older whi

program overall. >> reporter: but after president obama's re-election, health care reform is on more solid footing. still, that leaves plenty of unknowns, including what state health insurance exchanges will look like. states have until friday to opt in. tomorrow, we'll take a look at state-run exchanges, and some of the other factors that could change the way we pay for health care. sylvia hall, "n.b.r.," washington. >> susie: tomorrow on "n.b.r." a big day for retail earnings: walmart, target, dollar tree, and gap; all report results.nd and china's chooses its new diplomatic team, we look at that nation's historic once-in-a- decade leadership change. >> tom: the negotiations on avoiding the fiscal cliff will impact your paycheck, and possibly your portfolio, even if the only stocks you own are in mutual funds in a 401-k. john sweeney is executive vice president of planning and advisory services with fidelity investments. john, certainly this is a big threat for all investors, all income earners, how big is it for long-term investors? >> thanks, tom. a lot of our investors are askin

nominated as secretary of state it's not going to fly. boy, obama came all but saying just bring it on because i'm going to defend her. >> that was absolutely fierce defense. that part press conference really sort of blew me back there, listening to that defense. but i also did hear lindsey graham and john mccain talking earlier today, and they were just as fierce on the other side. and one thing president obama kept saying is that this basically-- her coming out and saying who she did in the early days wasn't her fault because she was not responsible for benghazi. but that's basically what john mccain and lindsey graham are saying. that she wasn't responsible for benghazi, so why did the white house put her out there? and they're saying only for political rains. and they criticize ambassador rice for not asking more questions. she got a briefing. she got a briefing on the latest intelligence, says the white house. the white house says they're the ones that put her out there. so if what she said turns out not to be true later, they should take the blame. but, boy, what a fierce defense

"market focus." >> susie: tomorrow is a big deadline for president obama's health care insurance reform. it's the day states across the country must decide if they will be setting up their own health insurance exchanges, or if they will opt out and let the government do it for them. sylvia hall takes a look at the exchanges, how they'll work, and how they will impact the way americans pay for care. >> reporter: the idea behind state health insurance exchanges is pretty simple-- the uninsured will have a central place to shop for health insurance. all plans will meet minimum coverage requirements and no one is turned down. in exchange, health insurance companies get more healthy customers, costing them less, because virtually everyone is required to buy health insurance. for those who can't afford it, the federal government provides subsidies. >> it's a little bit of a grand bargain that's been struck with the insurance industry-- you stop doing some of that cherry- picking behavior that's been so problematic, and in return, we'll guarantee you that there will be a steady stream of custo

states against the drug war that maybe washington and maybe the obama administration will get the message that the time has come and that we do something that needs to become something of the past and in national discourse. tavis: this project called "the house i live in" release started in your house. >> as i was growing up, i am a white jewish american. my parents fled the holocaust and the czars of russia. we all looked at ourselves as people who needed to understand that we represented struggle in europe and that, as we would see a struggle in america, we would want to identify ourselves with that struggle. so african-americans became a natural brothers in struggle. it was natural to see the struggle for dignity for black people in america as a sister struggle of the jewish struggle. growing up, it was always a part of my breakfast cereal to think of myself as someone who is part of a larger struggle. as i grew up, i had a lot of friends in the african-american community and people close to my family, and one in particular who is in the film. i watched as those young people th

there with president obama, and he asked you for, "what should i say about china in my state of the union message," what advice would you give him? >> say that we the relationship between america and china matters to the entire world because we'll either destroy the world's environment, or have some chance for saving it together. or else, if we don't work together on this, there's no hope. the two most strongly growing economies in the world need to help the world continue to grow and deal with equality and the stability and sort of decency of china as an international player is something only the united states is in the position to effect. it matters to our children if china -- how china uses its power. and so, the greatest stake we have the greatest outside our own borders, the greatest stake we have in the conditions for our children and grandchildren is our relationship with china. >> so this then is a very timely and important book.

secretary of state? >> i don't know. i don't know whether she'll be nominated. that is one of the things that president obama said yesterday. he said he hadn't decided. gwen: how about is this whether she was getting a nomination or how much of not letting him tell -- >> i can nominate anyone i want to. if i want to nominate susan rice, i will. but he certainly hasn't done that right, not put in stone, so we can't do that yet. i think certainly, i have seen a couple of very negative articles in the past 24 hours, too, about her. it sort of seems there is an effort to undermine that nomination. gwen: let's not forget the big story of the week -- >> yes! gwen: just one week ago even though i don't know what the question is anymore. we have women coming in and out who have passes to the bases who have secret clearance and have had computers taken from their homes. >> sisters and the letter by two generals about the twin sisters. gwen: the custody case. >> the custody case. gwen: let's sort of clear up where we are now. he resigned a week ago and what i saw this week is a lot of his s

key states in ohio and elsewhere because they wouldn't have the money to open them and the republican nominee will be sitting there with substantially more super pac support. just because this time obama as an incumbent was able to spend them to a draw should not suggest that that's what happens next time. >> i read in a couple of places that by the week of the election president obama had attended 221 fund raisers, far more than any other incumbent president in our history in 24 states and the time that is used to raise this money has to figure into our reckoning of its impact, right? >> this is a disaster for the country, this being the fact that we don't have presidential public funding and instead we have the incumbent president of the united states spending that much time out trying to raise money for his campaign instead of worrying about the economy, national affairs and international affairs. you may recall one of the debates romney went after obama saying that after the libyan incident you left washington and you went to nevada. that was for a fund-raiser. that's w
